Juniors playing in Senior teams

In order to ensure a proper development and progression for our particularly talented young hockey players, the Junior Section has formulated a policy together with the Mens and Ladies Sections for the integration of Juniors into Senior hockey. It is: U16 boys and girls: All young players in the U16 boys and U16 girls A teams (maximum of 16 in each group) will be invited to play hockey with the senior teams. There is no obligation. Should a player not wish to participate in senior hockey, they can continue to play as normal for their Junior U16 A team. Should a player wish to accept this offer, they will now be required to formally join their respective senior section by completing a senior membership form. The fee is £50 for the season and includes a match shirt. U14 boys and girls: The Junior Section does not support those in the U14s playing senior hockey. Although, exceptionally, some children have the necessary talent and ability, greater emotional maturity and robustness is usually required for adult hockey. We strongly advise against U14s playing adult hockey. Warning to parents: Please be aware that the Mens and Ladies Senior teams are designed for and run by adults. Therefore, your child may experience inappropriate stories, bad language, collisions and other adult behaviour. They may be excluded from certain activities. The senior sections are responsible for the safeguarding of children in accordance with the club’s policy – a role they take very seriously – however, many children are not yet ready for the speed and strength of adult hockey or have the game play experience. Injuries do occur. Make sure you are confident your child is ready for the adult hockey environment before they play.

Left Handed Gloves

England Hockey now advises that all players in the U14s, U16s and U18s age groups wear a left handed glove. These can be bought from Emblazon and other outlets.
